Camosun College
OP-16: Life Cycle Cost Analysis

Status Score Responsible Party
Complete Expired Graham McKinnon
Building Services


Institution employs Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) as a matter of policy and practice when evaluating energy- and water-using products and systems. Practices may include structuring RFPs so that vendors compete on the basis of lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) in addition to (or instead of) purchase price.  


This credit applies to all institutions.


Institutions earn the maximum of 1 point available for this credit by employing LCCA as a matter of policy and practice when evaluating energy- and water-using products and systems practice across the operations of the entire institution (i.e. all divisions). Partial points are available. For example, an institution that employs LCCA across some but not all of its divisions would earn 0.5 points (half of the points available for this credit).
